Happy Easter

I'm not going to get my 2000 words done today. And I didn't get them done yesterday, either. But I've still got a good chunk of the book done -- and still have lots more to do. But today I'm taking a break.

Wishing you all a happy Easter. Or if you're not celebrating Easter, happy spring. Or if you're down under, happy autumn. Somehow it's hard to associate pastel eggs with autumn. Oh well.

ps: It sounds like Liz liked the second pair of purple shoes.

Anne, sure, we downunderers associate pastel eggs with autumn -- we just don't think of easter as being for spring. ;-) Easter for those of us down south, is generally the last holiday before winter. (I specify down south, as people from the northern parts of Australia really don't have winter -- only the wet season or the dry.)

Where I live,during the Easter period we often have glorious sunny days and cool, crispy nights -- at least that's how I remember all my childhood Easters and it's the weather we have right now, as well. So often, easter Sunday is a family barbecue day.

But another aspect of the downunder southern easter egg that maybe you haven't thought about is bulbs -- in my family we often give each other bulbs as Easter gifts and it's lovely to see the coming to life after the winter. So there is a spring connection, after all.

Happy Easter, Anne.
And thanks so much for telling us about the Twyla Tharp book. It sounds fabulous. I'm a huge fan of her choreography and love to think that her ideas can be transferred to other art forms.

Anne, what a great idea to give bulbs as easter gifts. Thanks for giving me a feel for Easter down under. Maybe someday I'll get to experience it in person. Hope so.

Barb, I hope you get a chance to take a look at Twyla Tharp's book. I have found it so insightful and inspirational. I'm so not a dance person that I'm very impressed at how the creative habit transfers among all creative media. If you take a look at it, please let me know what you think.
